The Klamath River's vital importance to both Oregon and California explains the frequent disagreements over how its water will be used. The debates rage even in non-drought years, and 2015 is not one of those.
The federal Bureau of Reclamation continues work toward an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the Long-Term Plan for the Protection of Adult Salmon in the Lower Klamath River.
Shorter version: it's a plan that should take some of the annual ups-and-downs out of the late-summer releases of additional water into the Trinity River.
BOR just finished a series of open houses on the project and will take public input until Thursday, August 20.
